Donate & Get Involved

The destruction on the Mainland of Abaco is beyond anything we could have imagined. While the outer cays and communities are getting much needed assistance Marsh Harbour is becoming "old news".  This is unfortunate because only now are families considering coming back home to Marsh Harbour only to find that what they left behind is in ruins. Over 80% of homes are beyond rebuilding and the balance are severely damaged. As our island families are working to come home, the schools remain in ruins with the schools that are open having very limited resources.

The Situation

It has been over 6 months since the destructive winds and water of Hurricane Dorian made landfall in Marsh Harbour and pounded on us  for almost 3 days. Horrific stories of survival and loss haunt those who were present. Homes and businesses were destroyed, many schools are in ruins, thousands remain homeless and unemployed, the landscape was forever altered and there is still no municipal power and water on most of the island. Abaconians have fled to other islands and countries without their personal items and their pets.

The progress has been slow and painful for many as families are trying to come home. With waves of families trying to make their way back to Abaco, the schools are not able to handle the number of children coming home with their families. March For Marsh is filling the gap with the teachers and students buying classroom supplies and distributing them to the schools that are open and the virtual schools that are sprouting up throughout Abaco.
